For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to move through the $262 pivot level and the 23.6% FIB of $262 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $273.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $270 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $276.97 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a bounce back, Litecoin could test resistance at $300. The second major resistance level sits at $288.
Failure to move through the $262 pivot level and the 23.6% FIB of $262 would bring the first major support level at $247 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $236.
